Pet of the Month -
Clayton came to us as a stray in pitiful condition in April 2019. Of course it was a Friday evening when he arrived and it soon became obvious that this starving and emaciated little intact male was drinking abnormally high amounts of water. A quick urine test confirmed lots of sugar was present indicating diabetes. An out of hours call to one of our partnered vets got him started on insulin over the weekend and he was admitted to the clinic on Monday for a few days monitoring and treatment of some nasty infected wounds.
Clayton remains with NARA whilst we try to stabilize his blood sugars. He is so very affectionate! House training is a bit patchy but he does use pee pads. We will be looking for a long term foster, potentially to adopt, home for this sweet lad. He is currently not well enough for a neuter but has had his basic vaccinations.
Clayton sadly passed away at the vets very suddenly in the evening of Wednesday 25th September due to complications from his diabetes, caused by a pancreatic tumor. His vet was with him. RIP sweet boy.
